"Starfleet General Order 4 (aka GO 7) that forbids excessive use of continuity on the pain of death?"

That was a nice joke masked in an extremely nerdy piece of knowledge there Timmy. Were you testing us?

Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.

That's the first time I've ever seen Timo referred to as "Timmy"...

What, Tim, afraid you'll lose your carefully built-up name-recognition and drawing power?

Gauging the number of pictures by the fasteners on the wall is a great idea, actually. The fasteners seem to be spaced at roughly (4/3)s the width of each picture. That would mean that the picture after the carrier (the shuttle, presumably) would have a fasterner centered on it, the one after that would have it on the near side of centred, and then there'd be one final pic before the fastener in the near corner. That makes five.

Now, supposing that the Ent-(-A) is the last ship in the series, then number 4 is almost certainly the hoopship. Somebody cue the 1812 overture.

But if the last ship isn't the Ent-(-A) but instead another predecessor, we might have another newish design on our hands. Somebody cue the 1812 overture with live cannons.

*counts on fingers over and over*

I think my wee-hours-of-the-morning math skills are somewhat lacking. A (4/3) of the picture width fastener spacing would mean 4 pictures. Argh.
